Beyond the Food with ChocolateSuze

Throughout the history of civilisation, there have been multiple landmark discoveries and inventions that have completely changed the way we live, think and operate. Think electricity, television, refrigerators, space travel, the internet and chocolate. *SOUND OF A RECORD SCREECHING TO A HALT* Chocolate doesn’t belong on that list you say? Are you kidding me? Chocolate […]

Phomo, Barangaroo

New year resolutions suck. Why do you have to wait for the calendar year to change before you achieve something? I’ve always been about doing what I can as early as possible so future Isaac doesn’t have to worry. I can deal with stuff now so poor future iFat doesn’t have to fret about it […]


Otto Ristorante, Woolloomooloo

Confession: I once thought that Transformers was the greatest movie ever made. I emerged from the Megan Fox/explosion fest thinking I had just witnessed cinematic history. I was young, but I wasn’t THAT young. My only defense is this, there were robots duking it out, and Megan Fox is a god damned fox and my […]

Belle’s Hot Chicken, Barangaroo

Have you ever met someone who makes you feel like¬†they’ve cast a spell upon you? You have? Well, I haven’t and I don’t plan to. I rather they cast a bucket of Belle’s on me. After single-handedly keeping Barangaroo from resembling a zombie wasteland with their pop-up, Belle’s Hot Chicken¬†have now opened a full blown […]

Bar Ume, Surry Hills

Give it t-ume, baby. You have to admit I’m pretty fly for a blog guy. You know what else is pretty fly? The newly revamped Bar Ume in Surry Hills. (Disclaimer: I was invited to sample Bar Ume’s brand new menu however opinions remain my own). Chef/owner Kerby Craig already has extensive experience with burgers […]

Dutch Smuggler, Broadway

Shopping centre food is notoriously bad. You either have to settle for fast food that isn’t served very fast, unauthentic Chinese food that you can’t find in China or butter chicken without any butter in it. Look what smuggled into Broadway Shopping Centre whilst everyone was watching the Olympics. I’d like to introduce Dutch Smuggler […]

Salmon and Bear, Newtown

If you have a look at what Hollywood is coming up with outside of comic book movies, you’ll be thoroughly disappointed. We have remakes, prequels, sequels, sequels to prequels and movies trying to convince us that Kevin James is a movie star. We also have weird combinations coming up like Godzilla vs King Kong….yes, it […]

sydney donuts

Best Donuts in Sydney

Once upon a time, Sydneysiders didn’t have a hole lot of choice when it came to the humble donut. We had Krispy Kreme, Woolworths’ baking section and….well, that was really it. Fast forward to 2016 and we have a brand new yeast on life. We’ve got more Doughnut Times than we do McDonald’s restaurants (not […]

sokyo breakfast

Sokyo Breakfast, Pyrmont

My parents and I have been through Hell and high waters together. But I’m not going to get into that, I’m going to talk about the hardest conversation I’ve ever had with them. I’m going to talk about the time I tried to explain the economic concept of ‘sunk cost.’ For those that don’t know, […]

Skittle Lane, CBD

Have I ever told you guys about the first time I tried to cook? My mother was in the process of preparing dinner and I nominated myself as her sous chef. By that point in time, I had seen enough cooking shows to build up a false sense of confidence in my budding skills as […]

zero degrees pufferfish

Zero Degrees, Sydney CBD

During my last year of high school, I had a dark day. It was a day where I felt like the sky would fall, that when the harsh lights of my final examinations would wilt me and I would amount to nothing. I would disappoint my grandparents that considered me a prodigy, I would disappoint […]
